They both end up going. [[spoiler: The Stag King takes Mordred, leaving Arthur to be rescued (but unable to return to British Space) by the Ladies of Avalon.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/NorthFace'', a group of mountain rescuers originally refuse to help the main characters, who are now stranded on their mountain in a snowstorm, on the grounds that they knew it was incredibly dangerous to even try.

-->'''Dean''': She didn't ask many questions at the interview, I know that.
